I dont have a top 3. I love the song too much. And there are so many versions that get "there".

how about under the radar?
1992-03-23 is a stellar dew and I've never seen it mentioned.
1985-11-02 is killer and the following throwing stones is amazing (and i pretty much hate the song)
1979-11-08 (road trips 1) is also really firery with phil launching bombs, but its very short. Still great though.
Same story with 1978-04-15 (both are the only dews of their year)

I wish I could give you an answer but I cant. I really prefer 72 dews overall (i'd prob pick 9/21, 10/18 and 11/13 as my favs from the year, but thats at this moment in space time), i think they got it best there.

Though the dews performed on 1976-12-31, 1977-05-08/22 are really amazing and a certain pinnacle in the playing of this song.

You said three right?

interesting. imo they reached their peak with dew in '74. '73 is my 2nd favorite year for dews, followed by '72(09/21 is my favorite, with 05/18 close behind). my all-time favorite version is probably 1974-02-24.

also from '74: 06-18, 09-10, and 10-18 are 3 of my favorite versions ever.

and from '73: 11-17, 11-30, 02-28, 08-01, 10-19, 06-10, and 09-11 are all top 15 or top 20 versions in my book. i hope you've heard all the ones i've mentioned.

Well in general its all about 72-74 dews. I love that sound so I'm with ya, I just prefer 72 out of those years. Part of it might be that there are just short of 3 times as many dews played in 72 than in 74.

I agree with you about your 74 picks. I've never been able to figure out which i think is best from this year, it always switches.

For 73, My favorites are 2/28, 11/10 and 12/2. I still have some digging to do for this year though.
